im doing the swap right now and let me tell ya, with all the sensors and stuff that you have to mess with in the harness, i highly dought it would pass emissions. its not exactly that hard of a swap either. if your seller sends the shift linkage and motor mounts, you can get the old engine out and new engine in(not running) in about 4 hrs like i did. (i drive a 98 civic cx by the way) have to do a little wiring, add in knock sensor wiring, switch the icav plug, the iat sensor plug. and do the cps mod. totally worth it if you can find the cash
